Personally, I thought last night’s primetime SNL show was boring and unfunny, but posting political clips gets the Huffington Post a zillion clicks a week so I figure I should get in on that action, too. The part with Bill Murray was actually kind of funny, but it’s spoiled a little be knowing he only probably did it because his crappy kid movie, City of Ember comes out tomorrow. I know, I’m a negative Nancy. Here are some links to cheer us all up.
This custom Ninja Turtles figure was made to look like the turtles from the original comic, which was way more violent and kind of disturbing. The figure itself is kind of gross to look at and nowhere near as cute as the mutants I knew and loved as a kid. (/Film)
The first pictures of Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes suggest that he could use both a bigger vest and a smaller hat. (Latino Review)
This is the video for "Do the Bartman," which was part of the musical abortion The Simpsons put out a long time ago. Someone sent this to me today and it made me want to go back in time and murder the 9-year old version of myself for ever liking this.
Yes, we posted this yesterday. But you still have a little more than a day to bid one of the official Ghostbusters cars.

And finally, you know you’ve done this before. It usually involves beer. (youfellasleepwatchingadvd)
It’s always fun to see what goes on behind closed doors in the movie world. This 11 year-old tape is a discussion between Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein back when Robert De Niro apparently thought he was getting shafted for his role in Jackie Brown. The whole thing should leave you feeling slimy, and if not, you might be perfect for the movie biz.
Check out Entertainment Weekly‘s cover that takes a jab at The New Yorker. It’s not traditionally funny as much as it’s something that makes smart people say, "My dear, that’s funny! Where’s my pipe?" (EW.com)
I have never seen an episode of Magnum P.I. and it really doesn’t look like I missed much. I’m more of a Walker Texas Ranger guy. (Holy Taco)
Here are two uneventful photos from the set of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. They look….Tim Burton-y. (Cinematical)
Just in case you missed last night’s Office premiere, the whole thing is online for free at Hulu.
